RCIA PROGRAMME 2021 – 2022
It is with absolute delight, that we are able to announce that the next RCIA Programme will begin on Tuesday 28th September at 7 pm at St Augustine’s!
The RCIA Programme is for those people who are interested in becoming Catholic, or for those adults who have not celebrated the Sacraments of Holy Communion or Confirmation.

Each Monday between 5.30 pm and 7 pm we have an Open House at St Augustine’s Church in Heelands. It is a chance to meet with one of the priests or deacons to book baptisms, complete marriage paperwork, sign school application forms, or any other practical things you would like to have a word about. There is no need to make an appointment, just come along!
FIRST HOLY COMMUNION AND CONFIRMATION
Many parishioners have been enquiring about the First Holy Communion and Confirmation Programmes! Please do not worry – they haven’t started yet!
It is hoped that over the next few weeks, application forms will be available and more details about dates and times will be forthcoming!
